    How to enable OEM install for UEFI Boot

    I've created a USB boot drive and can install in OEM mode fine when using legacy BIOS (Hold F4 at boot prompt),

    If I boot a fresh install via UEFI, Ubuntu loads live to the GUI and the only options available are "Try" or "Install"

    How can I get the option of an oem-install when booting from UEFi please?

    Thanks

    I think you can just install and customize with a temporary user and finally install and run 'oem-config' and shutdown. The next boot should ask for setting up username, password, etc.

    Can you not just add
    Code:
    oem-config/enable=true
    to the linux... line in your grub.cfg file in your EFI boot partition?

    Thanks, I didn't realise that the EFI boot basically auto ran the first option in grub.cfg to launch Ubuntu Live GUI.

    I Added oem-config/enable=true to the other menu entries in the grub.cfg and UEFI boot now loads into the GUI with manufacturer mode install enabled.

    Thank You.
